We give a relatively simple proof of the famous theorem of Narasimhan and Seshadri on vector bundles on a compact Riemann surface. The theorem relates the algebraic geometric notion of stability of vector bundles on a compact Riemann surface with a transcendental construct - unitary representations of a suitable Fuchsian group associated to the Riemann surface.
